Never seen machines like these before! They were incredible and brilliant fun. Great for all ages - spent a good couple of hours testing them all out and having a good laugh. If you want to do something new and different - definitely go here!

The Pier is a great seaside attraction of how you would expect a Pier to be. Somewhat quirky. It's one of a declining number of Piers around the coast. This one has been rebuilt. It houses a Restaurant, the under the pier show, shopping and...More

A brilliant hidden gem on Southwold pier filled with obscure arcade games, the Somali pirate game is exceptionally good. Although the games are crammed into a rather small room which would be better situated in another place.

The under the pier show is easily accessible on Southwold Pier, and full of handmade, unusual machines. Not a typical arcade at all, I would encourage everyone to visit at least once and have a laugh! Bring a bit of change (not expensive) and you...More

The Restaurant on the Pier is a fantastic place to visit while in Southwold it is famous for their freshly court fish. There is also other delicious meals to choose from their menu. The staff are always very friendly too!

Hats off to all the inventors/designers of these very individual arcade-like attractions. Fun for all ages. Loved the Wolf & Mobility games 😂

I don't think dogs are restricted on any part of the Pier, not even the restaurant. As long as they are well behaved of course.
